Lilacbuds has earned its reputation as being amongst the best ISB admission Consultants. ISB is a highly selective school with less than 15% of applicants getting interview calls. LilacBuds clients have had a success rate of over 70% (32 out of 45 applicants in 2022 intake) when it comes to receiving interview calls. LilacBuds is the only ISB admission consultant to offer an interview assurance package - with a 30% fee refund granted in case the applicant is not selected for the interview. This is granted to any applicant with 2+ years of experience and having an average GMAT score as per the ISB class profile.
Starting from profile building to interview prep and ending up in India’s Top Business School for my MBA, LilacBuds not only helped me throughout my application process but also mentored me on aspects that I would carry for my lifetime. They were crystal clear with their approach towards how to go with the process. The structure was so informative that it helped me know more about myself.
Thank you for helping me get into my dream school.
Their detailing of stories about my experiences & goals really helped me think about my career from a more strategic perspective. Along with Preyash, I was also assisted by Shikha (an ISB alum) and I must say the whole team was very accessible & involved. The LilacBuds technology portal was really helpful in keeping the whole process streamlined and on track.
It’s very easy to choose a consultant and start the application process but what I was looking for was a mentor. LilacBuds not only helped me with my college applications but also guided and mentored me along the way! The whole approach really helped me understand my weaknesses and strengths. They are very approachable and understanding, and I never felt alone or confused in the process! Thank you for helping to get into my dream school.

ISB uses a holistic approach to evaluate applicants based on past academic performance (strong GMAT+GPA), impact work and extracurricular activities, work experience (usually 2-4 years), essays, recommendations, achievements and other non-academic criteria.
a.) Competitiveness: ISB is one of the top business schools in India and receives a large number of applications each year. Applicants are concerned about the high level of competition and wonder if their profile and achievements are strong enough to secure admission.
b.) GMAT/GRE scores: ISB requires applicants to submit GMAT or GRE scores as part of their application. Candidates may worry if their scores are competitive enough to meet the school's requirements. They may also have concerns about the test preparation process and how to achieve a competitive score.
c.) Essays and recommendations: Applicants are often anxious about writing compelling essays that effectively showcase their personal and professional attributes. They may also have concerns about selecting appropriate recommenders who can provide strong endorsements of their abilities.
d.) ROI and career opportunities: Applicants often want to understand the networking and career prospects associated with an MBA from ISB. They may be concerned about the strength of ISB's alumni network, the reputation of the school among employers, and the availability of job opportunities after graduation.
Diverse opportunities are available to ISB students. They have placements across various sectors, such as consulting, finance, technology, media and marketing. Companies from various industries visit the ISB campus to employ students. These include top companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe, McKinsey, BCG, Citi Group, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Google, KPMG, Infosys, Tata, Wipro, HCL, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, and Flipkart. ISB also helps its students develop employability skills like networking, interviewing, and personal branding.
The total fees to pursue an MBA at ISB is Rs. 43 lakhs for one year. Financial Scholarships are awarded to exceptional candidates based on academic excellence, industry experience, diversity considerations, past commitments and other unique criteria. ISB also offers several need-based scholarships and awards. Information on the same is available on the ISB website.
Taking a loan to pursue studies at ISB is a personal decision and depends on several factors such as financial constraints, career goals, earnings potential after completing the course and ability to repay the loan. However, ISB alumni have reported success in their careers, thus making an education at ISB worth the investment. Moreover, ISB’s loan counseling team assists students in availing loans from prominent banks and NBFCs in India.
